1st Grade Play

Chase's class is putting on play this week called: "It's a Jungle out There"

I offered to help out with the costumes and organized all of the volunteers with their tasks.

Here are my creations:

Hyena Hats
I actually inherited 6 of these with pointed ears that were bats on previous years. I rounded the ears and made them stand up a bit more. We needed 8, so I created 2 more to match. Oddly enough the inner part of the ears were made with Bazzill paper.

Monkey Hats
I made these with brown hats and added rounded little ears and felt pieces to come down on the kid's heads. Another mother is making tails with a wire coat hanger in them. They should look very very cute. 8 total.

Cheetah Hats
I had a lot of fun making these hats. I made all of the spots out of back felt that I die cut on my Sizzix! Who knew that the Sizzix could make cosutmes ... LOL! I glued big Googlie eyes on the hats and then folded some of the spots to use as eyelids. Lots of hot melt glue was used on these. I found great leathery material that I used for the noses. 3 total.

Leopard Hats
Ok so these were probably the most fun to make! I had great spotted material to work with. I made 8 shawls out of it and then still had a bunch left. I covered the brims with the spotted material and then I made all of the spots on my Sizzix again! What a great tool for costume making!!! I again glued big Googlie eyes on the hats and then more spots as eyelids. I used that great leathery material agin for the noses and inner ears. 8 total.

Here is a close-up:

Chase has all of his lines memorized and has been working on this play for weeks at school. Wish him luck. I hope to have pictures of the play to post later!

TAC February Specials

This month's SOTM (Stamp of the Month) set is soo darn cute and just in time for Easter!! The Vintage set of the month is very useful for scrapbooking and altered art projects. These sets are quite a steal with any $30 purchase.

Here is a card that I made with the SOTM:

This card utilizes the Hippity Hoppity set. I made the lattice background with the Scorpal. I colored the image with Copic markers. The carrots were made 3D with orange Liquid Applique. You can let the Liquid Applique dry and then come back and heat it with an embossing gun (and it puffs!!!). Used my Scalloped circle punch as another cute accent.

TAC is also offering a special set this month. For $25.95 you get the Pop Rocks Paper set and this adorable Easter set.

All of these sets are only available in the month of February ..... please contact me today if you'd like to take advantage of these deals.
